Well worth the money. Just like any other magazine, I don't use all the recipes, but we have a good number that we make over and over. Much healthier than a lot of the other so-called "Light" cooking magazines!
Me too! That's where I first learned about clean eating. My subscription just ran out last month. I think this time I will get electronic so I can get it on my Kindle and have the recipes in the kitchen.

I LOVE CE mag! I agree the recipes are hit and miss, but I get inspired to try different twists on recipes, and I LOVE the 14 day eating plans (I get a ton of ideas from them, and most of the meals are super easy). I keep every single one in my kitchen with my recipe books, and have actually created a database on my laptop with the recipes and which issue they're in, so I can stop digging through each issue's index to find a certain recipe. CE mag literally changed my life. I came across it one day in a bookstore, and when I made the decision to lose this weight, I started eating clean. I know it's been a huge part of my success!

I got the same deal and bought 2 years worth of the subscription as I figured It was the same cost for only 3 of the magazines at the grocery store.
I have to second everything that you've said. Although I have to admit the Eating Clean Fall Special Edition of Comfort Foods is a kick-butt magazine! I would pay for that one over and over again no questions asked!
Clean Eating is like a bad religion- full of obsession and accult thinking.

I got a subscription ($5 for a year!) - always on the look out for a good deal. I enjoy it and it does provide some good ideas. We made 3 recipes this past week and only one was a keeper. The other 2 were ok but nothing I would make again. Just as with most recipes it is hit or miss. Don't think I would pay full price for it though.....
I've had a subscription for a couple of years. I agree that the recipes can be hit or miss, but overall I do like it. It gives me some good ideas and I use the menus as a guideline when I'm in a rut or falling off track.

Since I'm a gluten-free vegetarian there aren't always recipes I can try. But I do enjoy reading the articles. and I like that there is a magazine where I at least don't have to worry that the recipes are full of junk. Even if I still have to change a bunch of things.
MUSCLE DOES NOT WEIGH MORE THAN FAT 5 lbs = 5 lbs
5 lbs of muscle simply takes up less space than 5 lbs of fat!
If nothing tasted as good as being thin felt, no one would ever get fat!
